Hello bees! I am in love with the idea of having a solo violonist for my wedding ceremony. However, I have never really heard a violin play by itself in a wedding. So my question is, is a solo violinist enough for a small wedding? We are only having about 35 people at the cermony and it will be in a small chapel. Or should I get two of them? Please let me know your opinons! Thank you!!

@Sandrawchs: I think it would be enough for a wedding that size.

We are also doing a solo violin during the ceremony and cocktail hour, and it never occured to me that it wouldn’t be enough. It will be a backyard wedding, with 100 people. Now you’ve got me worried….

I went to a wedding ceremony with just a violin and it was very very nice!

One is plenty, I have been to a wedding outside and they had one violinist

I am also wondering this. My brother is an expert violinist and will be playing our processional music as his contribution to our wedding. We are having a Catholic Church ceremony with around 150 guests so now I’m second guessing if we need “backup” music at the same time.

I’m sorry didnt mean to worry anyone! just wanted to know if someone had been to a wedding with a solo violinist. It sounds like it will be enough I’m going to stick to that plan and save some money 🙂

A solo violinist would be amazing, IMO. I’ve been to 2 weddings that had that, one was 170 people and the other was 80 people. In both settings it was great!

I am having the ver same concern right now… I haven’t booked my violinst yet, but he is charging us $500 for just the ceremony (and says we can negotiate cocktail hour)…
I haven’t met with him yet, but I am going to ask if he plays recorded music/cd’s in the background to sort of FILL in what I think should be in the background….

My niece plays. I’ll be having her. If you have a concern, give the violinst a microphone and amplifier or something so music can carry.

You could have a solo violinist with some background music if you’re worried.
